Go out into the city and experience landscapes and sceneries like no other. During this tour, you will visit craters, lunar landscapes, volcanic phenomena, and a variety of famous landmarks. A scenic drive from the capital city will lead you to the Reykjanes Peninsula, where an abundance of volcanic remnants awaits. You will also stop at the Bridge between continents which separates North America and Europe. With that bridge, guests are able to walk from one continent to another. Experience the beauty of nature from all sides in this area, be it in the sheer rugged beauty of the North Atlantic coastline, the fascinating and unique lunar-like landscape or the hardiness of the region’s flora and fauna. Volcanic wonders are all around you, and you will get to visit an imposing row of craters near a high-temperature thermal field. Your final stop will be at one of the Reykjavík’s most famous landmarks, The Pearl. Originally built for hot water storage in the 1930s, The Pearl now houses an elegant revolving restaurant, a museum, cafeteria and a small souvenir shop. While there, enjoy panoramic views of the city’s colorful rooftops and beyond.
